Kapoho Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Charming cottage with unique beach! One of only 6 homes that front the popular Champagne Pond. Walk out the lanai, climb the ladder into the crystal-clear inlet, and swim with the turtles to the large part of Champagne Pond...

Charming cottage with beach right on Champagne Pond! For those lucky enough to have stayed in the Beach Lots community of Kapoho, you know there are only 6 homes that front the very popular Champagne Pond, and this is one of them! Walk out the lanai, climb the ladder into the crystal-clear inlet in front of the cottage, and swim out with the turtles to the large part of Champagne Pond. For those who haven't yet experienced Champagne Pond, it's a huge geothermally heated warm pond, with incredible snorkeling in calm warm waters with sea turtles and colorful tropical fish.

Let the video show you more.

But wait! There's also a white sand beach! A rare find in East Hawaii, but the owners of this cottage decided to build their own rock wall overlooking the pond and fill it up with that white sand that slips through your toes. Sunbathe away in sunny Kapoho while you relax on lounge chairs and feel that ocean breeze.

It's not just about location at Champagne Pond Cottage. This truly charming two-bedroom cottage was built in 1957 by James and Mildred Kuwana. It survived the 1960 lava flow that covered Kapoho. Mr. Kuwana and another long-time resident had the lava flow dredged to create what is known today as Champagne Pond. The home was refurbished in 1994 and just recently upgraded with a new kitchen and bath, complete with granite countertops and beautiful windows.

The cute kitchen is well equipped with refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, rice cooker, pots and pans, cutlery, dishes, and there is a full-size washer and dryer. (The kitchen has no conventional oven but there is a charcoal BBQ on the lanai.) Windows surround the kitchen on three sides to bring in the view.

Ohia wood floors grace the living area, which has comfortable seating, a flat-screen satellite TV with a gazillion channels including CD-quality commercial-free music stations, and a DVD player. The outdoor lanai serves as the main dining area with a picnic table overlooking the pond.

The cottage has a strict maximum of ony 4 people on the property at any time (sorry no invited guests are allowed at this property) due to the small septic system. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds. The bedrooms are small but work well for a family.

Champagne Pond Cottage offers a glimpse into an old Hawaii home, with upgraded features and a location you will never forget!

Reviewer Comments:
We are a family of 4 and we had a wonderful 3 days in Champagne cottage . The location is amazing and the natural ponds are great fun . Kitchen is excellent and decor throughout is more than adequate . The only downside is the size of the main bedroom and the bed being rather small ( i have a pregnant wife so it meant me sleeping in the living room . Kids were happy on the large bunkbeds . Outside area is great and the 1st day we were snorkeling a large turtle came and joined us !! highlight of the trip ! ..Not sure the man made beach is useful but a few times we opened the door and went through the black sand beach which was great . All in all a great stay and i would happily come back and visit again .

Reviewer Comments:
I live here on the Big Island and I always wanted to rent a vacation home at my favorite place, Champagne Ponds. At first I was unsure if I wanted to spend a little extra just to be on the water, and when the ad said cottage I was even more leery. I decided to give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised with everything. I had an amazing weekend surrounded my Hawaii's finest. The "cottage was well stocked and clean, the warmth of this home made relaxing so easy. If you ever decide that you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of every day life, this is by far the best place to go, and one of the most amazing vacation rentals on this island!

I had an overall great experience with my stay. House was clean & well prepared, price was just right. Loved the fact that property was gated for a nice security. Management was great up until checkout, they will work with you on a later check out upon availability however make sure to have late check out confirmed by email or in any form. My late check out was mixed up and the agent i spoke to was nicely RUDE about things. Other then that i will book this cottage again in the future!

Owner's Response: I am the nicely RUDE agent that you spoke with. I am sorry for that. It was a miscommunication and I apologize. When I first returned your call, I didn't see the note that one of other people had put in your file about the late check-out. I wasn't trying to be rude; I was trying to be firm ;-) Sometimes we have to be with people to get them to leave Champagne Pond Cottage!

What a great time we had. The cottage is perfect for 2 or a small family and you have Champagne Pond right in front of you! I went snorkeling evry morning before breakfast and it was awesome. It gets crowded at the weekend but we left Saturday and had the greatest time. At night you fall asleep by the sound of the rain and the frogs...wonderful. The management company was super nice and helpful and I really miss this place.
